Our Tautoko Hauora Team

As a College, we want to support every student who is finding life difficult by helping them to find their own solution or coping strategies to minimise these difficulties and enable them to succeed. There are a vast array of reasons why a student may see a counsellor, include

  • Struggling with your mental health? 

  • Concerned for your personal and or physical safety.  

  • Dealing with emotional or addictions issues. 

  • Concerned for yourself, a friend or a whanau member? 

If you need assistance, we encourage you to make time to see one of our NZAC (NZ Association of Counsellors) registered counsellors.

We have three part time Kaiwhakamahereora I Counsellors available Monday to Friday who offer a safe space to come for support, advice and advocacy. 

To make an appointment fill in a Counselling Referral Form
